About me

I am a licensed counselor in Missouri with 12+ years of professional work experience. I have experience helping clients cope with addictions, parenting issues, motivation, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, confidence, and executive and professional coaching. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I work from various evidence-based modalities and tailor sessions to clients’ needs, empowering them to drive the therapy. I believe it’s essential to understand the “why” behind the thoughts and the feelings, and I enjoy incorporating psychoeducation about brain and trauma responses when appropriate.
